The acquisition follows a detailed search by ieDigital over the past year for a business partner that can help the company accelerate its growth plans and cement its position in the UK FinTech industry.

Jerry Young, CEO of ieDigital, said, “We are very excited about the growth opportunity this acquisition will bring. Joining forces with Connect FSS will enable us to support a broader range of customers in different geographies that we wouldn’t have otherwise been able to reach and strengthen our technology with insight from our new colleagues in the US. We look forward to seeing the benefits that will come with today’s deal.”
